Training for Fun / Training to Win!

It is very important, before you start any agility training to first have good Agility Foundation Skills. This helps prevent injury by gradually developing your dogs skills which will be used to negotiate the equipment.

For dogs that can negotiate all the obstacles and put them together over a course, I offer 1 to 1 Agility training in County Durham, to work on specific issues or just to have an intensive training session with your dog. All equipment is rubber coated and competition standard. Please click here to fill in the contact us form to request this service.

    Good day,

    My name is Gabriela Ramirez and I am an A3 FCI agility competidor, trainer and judge in Colombia, South America. I will be starting graduate studies at Hull University this August, and I will be traveling with my dog, a male border collie. I would like to continue training and competing with him in England. He is a very well behaved and balanced dog that loves the game.

    Thank you very much for the information.

    Kind regards,
